Program / Curriculum

Our staff and classrooms provide nurturing and responsive relationships that are essential for healthy growth and development. We want to offer a safe and educational space where all aspects of development are combined with our faith based curriculum in order to stimulate and challenge children on an individual basis. Greenhouse Preschool uses themes, letters, and numbers of the week, as well as a color and shape for the month. Bible Time is a weekly Bible story and activity. Our teachers plan and implement various activities relating all topics together and according to developmental levels of the children. Greenhouse Preschool has decided to use our own faith based curriculum and choose to not use one of the options provided by the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education (NCDCDEE), in order to maintain daily dedication to our Christian faith and the Bible themes we provide. As a result, we can only receive a rating of 3 stars by the NCDCDEE. However, we feel that our faith based curriculum is one of the major reasons many parents choose Greenhouse Preschool and stand firmly by our decision.

Food and Nutrition

Greenhouse provides nutritional balanced meals and snacks for the children. The center will provide a morning snack (not to take the place of your child’s breakfast), a well-balanced lunch and a nutritional afternoon snack. Outside food or drink should not be brought into the center (excluding the infant rooms). If your child is on breast milk, formula, and/or baby food, the parent is responsible for providing the center with bottles and food for an ample supply each day. All bottles must be pre-made and labeled and will be heated with a bottle warmer. If mothers prefer to breast feed their infants on site, they are welcome to use our lounge to do so. As your child begins to eat solid foods and drink from a cup, Greenhouse Preschool will provide snacks and lunches according to the menu.

Classrooms

Greenhouse Preschool provides care from 6 weeks to 12 years of age. Upon enrollment, your child will be placed in a classroom based upon his or her chronological age. Your child will stay in that room for the school year and each age group will transition to the next age group in August of each year.
